What Does it Take to Get Ahead Now-And Stay There? High performance has always required shrewd strategy and superb execution. These factors remain critical, especially given todays unprecedented business climate. But Rich Karlgaard-Forbes publisher, entrepreneur, investor, and board director-takes a surprising turn and argues that there is now a third element thats required for competitive advantage. It fosters innovation, it accelerates strategy and execution, and it cannot be copied or bought. It is found in a perhaps surprising place-your companys values. Karlgaard examined a variety of enduring companies and found that they have one thing in common; all have leveraged their deepest values alongside strategy and execution, allowing them to fuel growth as well as weather hard times. Karlgaard shares these stories and identifies the five key variables that make up every organizations soft edge: Trust: Northwestern Mutual has built a $25 million dollar revenue juggernaut on trust, the foundation of lasting success. Learn how to create an environment that engenders trust and propels high performance. Smarts: In most technical fields your formal education quickly becomes out of date. How do you keep up? Learn how the Mayo Clinic, Stanford University womens basketball team, and others stay on top by relentlessly pursuing an advantage through smarts. Teamwork: Since collaboration and innovation are a must in the global economy, effective teamwork is vital. Learn how global giant FedEx stays focused and how nimble Nest Labs relies on lean teams with cognitive diversity. Taste: Clever product design and integration are proxies for intelligence because they make customers feel smart. But taste goes further into deep emotional engagement. Specialized Bicycles calls it the elusive spot between data truth and human truth. How can you consistently make products or services that trigger these emotional touch points? Story: Companies that achieve lasting success have an enduring and emotionally appealing story. Whats your companys story? How do you tell it your way? Gain the ability to create a powerful narrative in a world where outsiders often exercise the louder voice. ??? ????????? - ???????? ???????

No one is born successful. When we were born, we even did not know how to spell successful, knowing its meaning was something quite far-off. As we grew up, we began chipping in efforts to turn our lives into successful lives. Some of us do achieve the success that we have thought about, but that doesnt come without a great deal of effort. One of the most important ingredients in becoming successful is to have a vision, a dream. If you dont know how to dream, you will most probably not achieve anything in life. Some people are afraid to dream, thinking they would be terribly frustrated if they dont achieve their goals. But the fact is that if you dont dream, you probably wont get it. Great people dreamed of flying, going to the moon and so on... you see now that we can fly, we can go to the moon. In this age when people are thinking how to build gadgets that can turn objects and even people invisible, it is quite unwise to restrict ones thoughts. What do you dream about? Probably you dream about having a great business or buying a home or a car of your own. In the light of all the achievements that people have made, do you think all this is as difficult as you think? This shows there is nothing impossible in this world you if you do it the right way, if you take initiatives and plan it properly. Just take the example of Bill Gates, our favorite example actually. Practically the whole world today uses his Microsoft products, not realizing that these products belong to a person who is a computer dropout. Take a look at Facebook. It started as a college project and has today made a revolution in the field of social networking. How can we not talk about Google, which started in a dingy office and today it dominates our online world. All these successes have been achieved in just a few short years! So, dont lose hope, hold on to your big dreams and try to achieve them.

Start-Up Financing. Where can a fresh entrepren...

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Business economics - Company formation, Business Plans, grade: 1,7, University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim (Wirtschaft), course: Betriebswirtschaftliches Seminar, language: English, abstract: To have a great idea for a Start-up is a very good predisposition for a successful business. Despite this amazing thought, unfortunately a lot of Start-ups fail at the beginning. According to the statistics 34% of entrepreneurs are 20-29 years old and 40% are between 30-39 years old once they start their first business. Most of the people in this age are already well-educated and they do not have many savings. It makes them look for alternatives, which could support the first critical years of their Start-up. At the beginning no one wants to invest in an unknown business, which leaves them with the idea of borrowing money elsewhere. As a matter of fact, no one wants to take a disadvantageous loan, so young entrepreneurs usually ask their family and friends for help, but by taking this kind of money, they are putting the good friendships and relationships at stake. So what are the options? Where can a fresh entrepreneur start looking for help and financial support? The answer should be clearer after reading this paper. The goal we are trying to reach, is to give a better overview of the options of financing, the advantages and disadvantages of different methods and show it on real life examples. One of the most important thing is to be well informed about the possibilities which are available, so it may come to the realization of the original idea and building of a successful Start-up. In order to give a better insight on this topic, we will also choose existing Start-ups and analyse what methods they have used, how they were implemented and what they had to give in return. We will pick not only from the successful ones, but also from the less fortunate businesses as its important to understand the know-how of winners just as important as to know the mistakes of others.
